Yes, the market has a big influence.

Of course, if you look at Europe then roulette is a far more popular game. In fact it is the number 1 game in the UK (not sure about the other European countries).

One potential problem with Alphabetic Roulette being introduced in the UK for example is that at 4% the house edge is considerably higher than the single zero wheels here.

Dave,
Can Poker For Roulette be added to Alphabetic roulette?

There's no reason why not. The math would have to be re-worked of course.

QRQRR, CACCA, LLLDD are full houses. So is WWUU(XY), with the single slot XY as wild zero.

PTSQR is actually a straight (PQRST), though that's REAL hard to see.

Sure it's hard for a person to see. But since Poker For Roulette will need electronics to track concurrent bets, the same electronics can identify winning combinations, easily.

BOOBS are two pairs, - not one. BALLS, however, is one pair.

One TITTY is three of a kind. How's that for weird math?

I suppose you coudl rework poker for roulette for this wheel, but wouldn't it make more sense to pay for certain words?

I've no idea how the math would work, but you could dream up any words and pay accordingly. Let's say words like JACKPOT, ROULETTE, FITZGERALDS, DAVE and so on. Naturally whether they need be hit in order or not changes the math a great deal.

If I meet the Alphabet Roulette guy at G2E, I'll talk to him. Otherwise, I'll contact him afterwards. It's certainly something to consider.

He was at the show last year. There are pictures from it on his web site. I'd lay 3 to 1 he is here this year.

Me too. We met a number of people who later became customers. Gotta be there, as expensive as it is.
Mike - do you think Roulette is over-represented at G2E? The G2E floor is a sea of wheels in some areas.....

Yes, the house edge is still the same.
The intervention of Roukette Link-Bets is just to give the player more betting options, not try to change the house edge.
And yes we are not doing the
player any favors, but are all casino games inventors here to invent games to favours the players?




We are trying to invent a game the players favor !

I would enjoy watching the complete works of William Shakespeare come out one letter at a time ... damn the monkeys at the typewriters!

Aren't a couple of letters missing? How is that handled?

Then there would be these delights ... waiting for that next letter to hit ...

Yes. It would be over-represented with one wheel. This is not what DJTB needs to hear, but roulette is a dying game. I have seen lots of roulette variants over the years. The number to get beyond a field trial, as far as I know -- zero.

What do you think are the chances of a SD BJ game with internal jackpots, not as sidebets ???
